The Memoirs of Orley Clifton Houghton
This biography contains the memoirs of 19th Century inventor and engineer Orley Clifton Houghton (1877-1965). His memoirs were hand-written and meant to be a brief history of the heritage of the Houghton family in Wisconsin, as well as an overview of Orley's early work as an inventor, in designing and producing mechanized farm equipment. It discusses the hardships of 19th century life on a farm in Wisconsin and his career as an engineer. As one of Orley's Grandsons, I believe this document should be preserved and shared with future generations. It is a fascinating and insightful window into 19th Century life.
